PREFACE 



I ANTICIPATE tlie wislies of those friends wlio Lave kindly interested tliem- 
selves in my work, by explaining how *'The Cliild's Book of Praise" has grown 
into "The Parish Hi^ENAii." 

At the outset my intention was simply to comxDile a collection of hymns for 
the Sunday-school of the Holy Cross. I was soon, however, induced by the 
earnest sohcitations of several of my clerical brethren to adapt music to the 
hymns. When I had completed my labours, and the book began to take form, 
it occurred to me that it was suited not only to the Sunday-school, but also to 
Bible and Confiimation classes, and, possibly, in some instances might be ser- 
viceable to the chou' and congregation so far as the Hymns were duly authorized 
to be used on occasions of pubUc worship. Without over-estimating the impor- 
tance of my little book, yet honestly rating its powers of adaptiveness, I 
concluded that a comprehensive title such as ** The Paeish HviiNAii, " would 
best denote its various uses. But the book, although adapted to the general 
purposes of the parish, is none the less fitted, as I believe, to tlie special objcv'it 
for which it is designed. 

And yet, when I think of the original design to jDrovide a book for Sunday- 
Bchools, I imagine a fiiend, after glancing his eyes over the pages of this 
Hymnal, suggesting, with a smile, that I have adhered too rigidly to the princi- 
ple enunciated by St. Paul in the familiar verse : " When I was a child, I spake 
as a child ; but ichen I became a man, I put away cldkUsli tilings.''' Such a friend 
might ventui-e to insinuate that the book is too old-fashioned, too dry and hard- 
fcatui-ed to suit children's wants and -wishes. I find it necessaiy, therefore, by 
Avay of an apology, to expose more fully the motives which have influenced me 
while selecting the Hymns and the accompanying Tunes. 

I have long wished to make the learning as well as the singing of Hymns an 
important element of the Sunday-school exercises, hoping that the Hymns so 
learnt might be treasured uj) with other sacred associations, and remembered in 
maturer years. In order to effect my purpose, I was accordingly, obliged to 
select Hymns worthy to be enshrined in the memory, provided I could do this with- 
out making the book unfit for present uses. After a careful consideration of 
the subject, and relying somewhat upon the results of my own experience, I 
reached the conclusion, that in adapting Hymns to the age, the mental and 
Moral qualifications of children, it is not necessaiy to restrict one's self in the 
■ -ction to baby-talk and nui-.sery jingles — that a Hymn with holy thoughts ex- 



pressed in good, strong English may prove even to children as acceptable as the 

the vapid, maudlin verses of the i^opular, childish, rhyme-effasions of the day 

that if children must be fed " hke babes" there is nothing to justify feeding 
them "with skimmed milk; that, on the contrary, we should endeavour to furnish 
a more substantial sort of nutriment, which may serve to "bring them up in the 
nurture and admonition of the Lokd." 

Similar remarks are applicable to the Tunes which are here adapted to the 
Hymns. In contrast with the popular Sunday-school songs and melodies, I am 
aware that some of the music in this Htmnaij may seem to be too severe and 
difficult. And I am ready to admit that in many instances the tunes are not of 
that peculiar style which *' takes" or "can be taken " at first hearing or sight. 
They must he learnt under the instruction of a choir-master or precentor, — a nec- 
essary official, in my opinion, in every well organized Sunday-school. This, 
by-the-way, may be the most practicable mode of introducing congregational 
singing into the Chui-ch. 

I avail myself of this opportunity to aclinowledge the kindness of the friends 
who have so generously helj)ed me in my work. From my much revered and 
more than much -loved friend, the Rev. Dr. MuHiiENBERG, I have received fresh 
signs of sympathy and regard in the words and notes which he has contributed 
to this HvMNAii. With a name so honoured and so fondly remembered, I am glad 
to join the names of other brethren, the Rev. Drs. Geeb and Hodges, and the 
Rev. Messrs. Leighton Cole]man, Wm. H. Cooke, John Heney Hopkins, Jr., 
John C. MiDDiiETON, J. B. Tibbits, and E. Solliday Weddemek, who, by their 
offerings of love and devotion, have added so much to the worth of this service 
of Sacred Song. I no less heartily express my obligations to Messrs. G. Baker, 
Prof, of Music; H. C. Lockwood, Esq.; S. B. Saxton, Esq.; N. B. Waeken, 
Esq., Mus. Bac. ; G. Wm. Wakeen, Professor of Music and Choir-Master of the 
Church of the Holy Trinity, Brooklyn, L. I. ; J. H. WzLiiCOX, Mus. Doc. ; and 
particularly to Mr. Wm. W. Rousseau, Organist of St. John's Chiurch, Troy, on 
whose experience and success in teaching children to sing Hymns and Carols I 
have much relied in selecting the tunes, and for whose efficient co-oiDcration my 
thanks are especially due. 

When I add that the music has been carefully revised by William H. 
Waltee, Mus. Doc. , Organist and Director of the Choir of Trinity Chapel, and 
Organist of Columbia College, New York, I feel as if I could give no better 
assurance of my desire to furnish "The Parish Hymnal" with all the advan- 
tages and attractions of science and art.

1 A SPLENDOUR of the Fathee's beam, 
Vy Who draw'st from Light its faintest ray 
Thyself the Fount of every gleam ; 

Day-star, that givest light to day. 

2 True Sun of Righteousness, arise 

In sheen of ever-streaming light, 
Outpour Thy Spibit from the skies, 
On mortal sense a radiance bright. 

3 O Father, come to help our vo-ws. 

Thou Fatheb of Almighty Grace : 
Eternal glory crovms Thy brows ; 
Each guileful sin do Thou erase. 

4 O strengthen all our valiant deeds ; 

Unpoison Envy's cruel fang ; 
Make smooth the rugged path that bleeds ; 
For steady steps on Thee to hang. 

5 Direct and rule the erring soul. 

May chastity unspotted reign ! 
Faith bum with fervour's Hving cocl, 
Unknowing craft's insidious i)ane ! 

6 Jn cheerful mood let pass this day ; 

Be modesty the dawning glow ; 
A bright meridian Faith display ; 

The soul a twilight never know. Amen.

-1-^ Our M-akening and uprising prove ; God will provide for sacrifice. 

Tlirough sleep and darkness safely brought, 4 xhe trivial round, the common task, 



Kestored to life, and power,*' and thought. 

New mercies, each returning day, j 

Hover around us while we pray ; ! 

New perils past, new sins forgiven. 

New thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven. ' 

If on our daily course our mind 

Be set to hallow all we find, , I 



WiU furnish aU we ought to ask, 

Eoom to deny ourselves, a road 

To bring us daily nearer God. 

Only, O LoED, in Thy dear love 

Fit us for perfect rest above. 

And help us, this and every day. 

To live more nearly as we pray. Amen.

1 A WAKE, my soul, and with the sun 
^ Thy daily stage of duty run ; 
Shake off dull sloth, and early rise 
To pay thy morning sacrifice. 

2 Rede -m thy misspent moments past, 
And live this day as if the last ; 
Thy talents to improve take care ; 
For the great day thyseK j^repare. 



3 Let all thy converse be sincere. 

Thy conscience as the noonday clear ; 

For God's aU-seeing eye surveys 

Thy secret thoughts, thy works and ways. 

4 Wake, and lift up thyself, my heart. 
And with the Angels bear thy part ; 
Who all night long unwearied sing 
High glory to the et jrnal King !

Mymn 4. 

1 TESUS, holy, nndefiled, 
^ Listen to a little child ; 
Thou hast sent the glorious light 
Chasing far the silent night. 

2 Thou hast sent the sun to shine 
O'er this glorious world of Thine ; 
Warmth to give, and pleasant glow, 
On each tender flower below. 

3 Now the little birds arise, 
Chirping gaily in the skies ; 
Thee their tiny voices praise 
In the early songs they raise . 

4 Thou by whom the birds are fed, 
Give to me my daily bread ; 
And Thy Holt Spiurr give. 
Without whom I cannot live. 

5 Make me, Lokd, obedient, mild. 
As becomes a little child ; 

All day long, in every way, 
Teach me what to do and say. 

6 Help me never to forget 
That in Thy great book is set 
All that children think and say 
For the awful Judgment Day. 

7 Let me never say a word 

That will make Thee angry, Loed, 
Help me so to live in love. 
As Thine angels do above. 

8 Make me, Lohd, in work and play. 
Thine more truly eveiy day ; 
And when Thou at last shall come. 
Take me to Thy heavenly home. Amen.

Sun of Eighteousness, arise. 

Triumph o'er the shades of night ; 
Dayspring from on high be near, 
Daystar in my heart appear. 

2 Dark and cheerless is the mom 

When ilhmiin'd not by Thee ; 
Joyless is the day's return 

Till Thy mercy's beams I see, 
Till they inv.-ard light impart, 
Glad my eyes, and warm my heart. 



3 Visit then this soul of mine ; 

Pierce the gloom of sin and grief ; 
Fill me, Eadiancy Divine ; 
Scatter all my unbelief ; 
More and more' Thyself display, 
Shining to the perfect day.

Hymn 6, 



IAS now the sun's declining rays 
-ti- Towards the eve descend ; 
E'en so our years are sinking down 
To their appointed end. 

2 LoKD, on the Cross Thine Arms were 
To draw us to the sky ; [stretched, 



O grant us then that Cross to love, 
And in Those Arms to die. 

3 To God the Father, God the Son, 
And God the Holy Ghost, 
All glory be from Saints on earth. 
And from the Angel-host. Amen.

Hymn 



1 rj.LOEY to Thee, my God, this night 
^ For all the blessings of the light ; 
Keep me, O keep me , King of kings. 
Under Thine own Almighty wings. 

2 Forgive me, Lord, for Thy dear Son, 
The ill that I this day have done, 
That with the world, myself, and Thee, 
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be. 

3 Teach me to live, that I may dread 
The grave as little as my bed ; 
Teach me to die, that so I may 
Eise glorious at the awful Day. 



O may my soul on Thee repose, 
And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close, 
Sleep that shall me more vigorous make 
To serve my God when I awake. 
When in the night I sleepless lie. 
My soul -^-ith heavenly thoughts supply ; 
Let no ill dreams disturb my rest. 
No powers of darkness me molest. 
Praise God from Whom all blessings flow ; 
Pi-aise Him all creatures here below ; 
Praise Him above, angelic host; 
Praise Fatheb, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Hyinn 8, 



1 OUN of my soul, Thou Savioub dear, 
^ It is not night if Thou be near ; 

O may no earth-born cloud arise 

To hide Thee from Thy servant's eyes. 

2 When the soft dews of kindly sleep 
My wearied eyehds gently steep, 

Ee my last thought, how sweet to rest 
For ever on my Saviour's breast. 

3 Abide with me from mom till eve, 
For without Thee I cannot live ; 
Abide with me when night is nigh, 
For without Thee I dare not die. 



4 If some poor wandering child of Thine 
Have spurned to-day the voice divine. 
Now, Lord, the gracious work begin ; 
Let him no more lie down in sin. 

5 Watch by the sick ; enrich the poor 
With blessings from Thy boundless store; 
Be every mourner's sleep to-night, 
Like infant's slumbers, pure and light. 

6 Come near and bless us when w-e wake, 
Ere through the world our way we take ; 
TiU in the ocean of Thy love 

We lose ourselves in Heaven above. Amen.

1 A BIDE with me; fast falls the eventide : 

-^ The darkness deepens ; Lord, with me abide ; 
"When other helpers fail, and comforts fiee, 
Help of the helpless, O abide with me. 

2 Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day ; 
Earth's joys grow dim, its glories pass a way ; 
Change and decay in all around I see : 

Thou Who changest not, abide with me. 

3 I need Thy presence every passing hour ; 

What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power ? 
Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be ? 
Through cloud and sunshine, Loed, abide with me. 

4 I fear no foe with Thee at hand to bless ; 
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness ; 
Where is death's sting, where, grave, thy ^^ctory ? 

1 triumph stiU, if Thou abide \\dth me. 

5 Hold Thou Thy Cross before my closing eyes ; 
Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies ; 
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee : 
In life, in death, Loed, abide with me. Amen.

Hymn 10, 



1 'pHE shadows of the ev'ning hours 
-L Fall from the dark'ning sky, 
Upon the fragrance of the flow'rs 

The dews of ev'ning lie ; 
Before Thy throne, O Loed of Heav'n, 

"We kneel at close of day ; 
Look on Thy children from on high, 

And hear us while we pray. 

2 The sorrows of Thy servants, Loed, 

Oh ! do not Thou despise ; 
But let the incense of our prayers 

Before Thy mercy rise ; 
The brightness of the coming night 

Upon the darkness rolls ; 
With hopes of future glory chase 

The shadows on our souls. 



3 Slowly the rays of daylight fade; 

So fade within our hearts 
The hop3s in earthly love and joy. 

That one by one depart : 
Slowly the bright stars, one by one, 

Within the Heavens shine ; — 
Give us, oh Loed ! fresh hopes in Heaven, 

And trust in things divine. 

4 Let peace, O Loed ! Thy peace, O God ! 

Upon our souls descend. 
From midnight fears, and perils. Thou 

Our trembling hearts defend ; 
Give us a respite from our toil. 

Calm and subdue our woes ; 
Th'-ough the long day we suffer, Loed, 

Oh, give us now repose ! Amen.

THE sun is sinking fast, 
The daylight dies ; 
Let love awake, and pay 

Her evening sacrifice. 
As Christ upon the Cross 

His head inclined, 
And to his Father's hands 

His parting soul resigned ; 
So now herself my soul 

Would wholly give 
Into His sacred charge. 

In "SVliom all spuits live ; 
So now beneath His eye 

Would calmly rest,

Dead to herself, and dead 
In Him to all beside.

Not I, but He 

In all His power and love 
Henceforth alive in me.

One Lord Divine ! 

May I be ever His, 
And He for ever mine. Amen.

1 A DAY of rest and gladnesG, 
yj O day of joy and light, 

O balm of care and sadness, 
Most beautiful, most bright ; 

On thee, the high and lowly 
Through ages joined in tune, 

Sing Holy, Holy, Holy, 
To the great God Triune. 

2 On thee at the creation 

The light first had its birth, 
On thee for om* salvation 

Christ rose from depths of earth 
On thee our Lord victorious 

The Spirit sent from heaven ; 
And thus on thee most glorious 

A triple light was given. 

3 Thou art a holy ladder 

V.Tiere Angels go and come ; 
Each Sunday find lis gladder, 
Nearer to heaven, our home ; 



A day of sweet refection 

Thou art, a day of love, 
A day of resurrection 

From earth to things above. 

4 To-day on wearj'- nations 

The heavenly Manna falls ; 
To holy convocations 

The silver trumpet calls ; 
"Where Gospel light is glowing 

With pure and radiant beams. 
And living waters flo-^-ing 

With soul-refreshing streams. 

5 New gi'aces ever gaining . 

From this, our day of rest, 
We reach the rest remaining 

To spirits of the blest. 
To Holy Ghost bo praises. 

To Father and to Son ; 
The Church her voice upraises 

To Thee, blest Thrue in 0:n3. Amen.

WELCOME, sweet day of rest, 
That saw the Lord arise ; 
Welcome to this reviving breast,

To feast his saints to-day ; 
Here may we sit, and see him here, 
And love, and praise, and pray. 

HOHENLOHE.

3 One day amidst the place 

Where Jesus is within.

To everlasting: bliss. Amen.

WELCOjME, sacred day of rest ; 
Sweet repose from worldly care ; 
Bay above all days the best. 

When our souls for heaven prepare ; 
Day when our Redeemer rose, 
Victor o'er the hosts of hell : 
Thus He vanquished all our foes ; 
Let our lips Hij glory tell. 



Hymn 20, 



Gracious Lord, we love this day, 
When we hear Thy holy Word ; 

When we sing Thy praise, and pray : 
Earth can no such joys afford. 

But a better rest remains, 

Heavenly Sabbaths, happier days ; 

Kest from sin, and rest from pair.s, 
Endless joys and endless xaraise. Amen.

Yet pass not from us with the sun, i 

Trae Light that lightenest all. ' 

Around Thy throne on high, 

"Where night can never be, ! 

The white-robed harpers of the sky ' 

Bring ceaseless songs to Thee. 
Too faint, our anthems here : 

Too soon of praise we tire ; ! 

But oh, the strains how full and clear 

Of that eternal choii- ! 1

4 Yet, LoED, to Thy dear will 

If Thou attune the heart, 

We in Thine angel's music still 

May bear our lower part . 

5 'Tis Thine each soul to calm, 

Each wayward thought reclaim, 
And make our daily life a psalm 
Of glory to Thy name. 

6 Shine Thou within us, then, 

A day that knows no end, 
Till songs of angels and of men 
In perfect praise shall blend. Amen.

-Li Once for favoured sinners slain ; 
Thousand thousand saints attending, 

Swell tlie triumph, of His train : 

Alleluia ! 
Cheist appears on earth again.

Eobed in dreadful majesty ; 
They who set at naught and sold Hira, 
Pierced and nailed Him to the tree, 

Deeply wailing, 
Shall the true Messiah see. 

3 Those dear tokens of His Passion 

Still His wounded Body bears ; 
Cause of endless exultation 

To His ransomed worshippers ; 

With what rapture 
Gaze we on those glorious scars. 

4 Yea, Amen, let all adore Thee, 

High on Thine eternal throne ; 
Saviouk, take the power and gloiy ; 
Claim the kingdoms for Thine own : 

O come quickly !

Observant of His heavenly word, 
And watchful at His gate. 

2 Let all your lamps be bright, 

And trim the golden flame ; 
Gird up your loins as in His sight, 
For awfal is His Name. 

3 "Watch, 'tis your Loed's command ; 

And while we speak, He's near : 



And at the signal of His hand, 
Be ready to appear. 

3 O happy servant he 

In such a posture found ! 
He shall his Lord with rapture see. 
And be with honour crowned. 

o Cheist shall the banquet spread 
With His own royal hand. 
And raise that faithful servant's head 
Amidst the angelic band . Amen.

Louder grows her old refrain :

Daring for the True and Eight, 

Alleluia,

Tokens, by the prophet pages. 

Seem to tell the Coming near. 
Alleluia, 

"Welcome, Lobd and Savioub dear ! 



4 List, the seventh trumpet peahng — 
While the world keeps on its ways, 
Sudden shows the last revealing ; 
Sudden breaks the Day of days : 

Alleluia,

Longing for the final doom :

Come, Lord Jesus, quickly come.

Hymn 29. 

1 ri 5EISTIANS, awake, salute the happy mom, 
^ Whereon the Saviour of mankind was bom ; 
Else to adore the mystery of love, 

Which hosts of angels chanted from above ; 
With them the joyful tidings first begun 
Of God Incaenate and the Virgin's Son. 

2 Then to the watchful shepherds it was told. 
Who heard the angelic herald's voice : "Behold, 
I bring good tidings of a Savioue's birth 

To you and all the nations upon earth : 

This day hath God fulfilled His promised word. 

This day is bom a Satioub, Cheist the Lokd." 

3 He spake ; and straightway the celestial choir 
In hyms of joy, unknown before, conspire : 
The praises of redeeming love they sang. 
And heaven's whole orb with alleluias rang : 
God's highest glory was their anthem still, 
Peace upon earth, and unto men good-will. 

4 To Bethlehem straight th'enlightened shepherds ran, 
To see the wonders God had \\T:ought for man : 
Then to their flocks, still praising God, return, 

And their glad hearts with holy rapture bum : 
To all the joyful tidings they proclaim. 
The first apostles of the Saviour's Name. 



Cijriistmas,

5 Oh ! may we keep and ponder in om- mind 
God's wondrous love in saving lost mankind ; 
Ti-ace we the Babe, "V\'ho hath retrieved our loss, 
Fiom the poor manger to the bitter cross ; 
Tread in His steps, assisted by His gi-ace, 

Till man's first heavenly state again takes place. 

6 Then may we hoj)e, the angelic hosts among, 
To join, redeemed, a glad tnmuphant throng : 
He that was bom upon this joyful day 
Around us all His gloiy shall display : 
Saved by His love, incessant we shall sing 
Eternal praise to heaven's Almighty King. Amen.

1 HTHE Son of God, bo high, so great, 
J- A little child like us would be ; 
He took our form iu low estate, 

And pressed an earthly mother's knee. 

2 And while the homed beasts among, 

In manger rude alone He lay, 
Out in the fields the angels sung, 

"A Saviour, Christ, is bom to-day." 

3 "We did not hear the angels chime 

Their birthday hymn to shepherd's ear; 
But we can think at Christmas time, 
How Jesus came to help us here. 



4 We cannot run as shepherds ran, 

To kneel beside that manger lone : 
But we can love our God, made man. 
And worship at His cradle throne. 

5 For us, the King of kings came down, 

For us He laid His glorv' by. 
That we might wear an angel's crown, 
And live the life that cannot die. 

6 0, teach Thy children, Holy Child, 

That eveimore they serve thee thus, 
And lead us by Thy mercy mild 
Up to the Heaven Thou kit for us.

1 ANCE in royal David's City 
yj Stood a lowly cattle shed, 
Where a mother laid her Baby, 

In a manger for His bed : 
Mary was that mother mild, 
Jesus Chkist her little Child. 

2 He came down to earth from heaven 

Who is God and Lokd of aU, • 
And His shelter was a stable, 

And His cradle was a staU : 
With the poor, and mean, and lowly. 
Lived on earth our SAVioini Holy. 

3 And, thro' all His wondrous childhood, 

He would honour, and obey, 
Love, and watch the lowly maiden 

In whose gentle arms He lay ; 
Christian children all must be 
Mild, obedient, good as He. 



4 For He is our childhood's Pattern, 
Day by day Like us He grew, 

He was little, weak, and helpless, 

Tears and smiles like us He knew ; 
And He feeleth for our sadness. 
And He shareth in our gladness. 

5 And our eyes at last shall see Him, 

Through His own redeeming love, 
For that Child so dear and gentle 

Is our Lord in heaven above : 
And He leads His children on 
To the place where He is gone. 

6 Not in that poor lowly stable, 

With the oxen standing by, 
We shall see Him ; but iu heaven 

Set at God's right hand on high : 
When like stars His children crowned 
All iu white shall wait around, Amen.

Hymn 30 



THE Word, vrii\x God tlic Fathtr Oxs, 
Before the lieav'ns and earth were made, 
Is now the Virgin's new-born Son, 

Upon her lowly bosom laid. 
Already on His sinless Head 

The streams of wrath begin to flow ; 
Already on His infant bed 

The taste of grief He deigns to know. 



3 The lowliest poverty He bears 

That we may be with wealth supplied, 
He weeps : O precious grief and tears ! 
Through Him the world is purified- 

4 jEsiT,who earnest from on high 

To be the Lamb for sinners slain. 
Leave not Thy ransomed flock to die, 
Nor let Thy toU be f:pent in vain. Amen.

Hymn 37.^ 



1 riHEISTIAN children must be holy, 
y^ Serving God from day to day ; 
Never is the time too early, 

For a Christian to obey. 

2 Jesus taught us in his childhood, 

Only eight short days He saw 
Ere He suffered circumcision, 
And obeyed His Father's law. 

3 He, who is our great example, 

Let no moment run to loss : 



I Not one preciou'^ hour He wasted, 

From the cradle to the cross. 
I 4 Soon He sorrow'd, soon He sufTer'd, 
I We must meek and gentle be ; 

Little pain and childish trial, 
Ever bearing patiently. 
5 Soon He showed a Sort's obedience : 
We must earlv learn to do 
Not our own will, but our Fatheb's, 
And be found obedient too. Amen.

Hymn 41, 



1 TTAlIL to the Lokd's Anointed, 
-tl Great David's greater Son ; 
Hail, in the time appointed, 

His reign on earth begun ! 
He comes to break oppression, 

To set the captive free, 
To take away trangression, 

And rule in equity. 

2 He comes with succour speedy, 

To those who suffer wrong, 
To help the poor and needy. 

And bid the weak be strong ; 
To give them songs for sighing, 

Their darkness turn to light. 
Whose souls, condemn 'd and dying, 

Were precious in His sight. 



3 He shall descend like showers 

Upon the fruitful earth ; 
And love and joy, like flowers, 

Spring in His path to birth : 
Before Him, on the mountains. 

Shall peace, the herald go ; 
And righteousness, in fountains, 

From hill to valley flow. 

4 To him shall prayer unceasing, 

And daily vows ascend : 
His kingdom, still increasing, 

A kingdom without end : • 
The tide of time shall never 

His covenant remove : 
His Name shall stand for ever : 

That Name to us is Love. Amen.

Gems of the mountain, and pearls of the ocean, 
Myrrh from the forest, and gold from the mine.

As with gladness men of old 
Did the c^niding star behold ; 
As with joy they hailed its light. 
Leading on-ward, beaming bright ; 
So, most gracious Loed, may we 
Evermore be led to Thee. 

As with joyful steps they sped 
To that lowly manger-bed ; 
There to bend the knee before 
Him Whom heaven and earth adore 
So may we with willing feet 
Ever seek the mercy-seat. 

As they offered gifts most rare 
At that manger mde and bare ; 
So may we with holy joy, 



Pure and free from sin's alloy, 
All our costhest treasures bring, 
Chsist ! to Thee our heavenly King. 

4 Holy Jesus, every day 
Keep us in the nari'ow way ; 
And when earthly things are past, 
Bring our ransomed souls at last 
Where they need no star to guide, 
"Where no clouds Thy glory hide. 

5 In the heavenly country bright 
Need they no created light ; 
Thou its Light, its Joy, its Crown, 
Thou its Sun which goes not down ; 
Tliere for ever may we sing 
Alleluias to our King. Amen.

Ere it pass for aye away. 
On our knees we fall and pray.

Fill us with heart-searching fears 
Ere that awful doom appears.

Kneeling lowly at the doorj 
Ere it close for evermore.

Lest we lose this day of grace

OFT in danger, oft in woe, 
Onward, Christians, onward go, 
Bear the toil, maintain the strife, 
Strengthened with the Bread of Life. 
Let not sorrow dim your eye, 
Soon shall every tear be dry : 
Let not fear your course impede, 
Great your strength, if great your need. 
Let your drooping hearts be glad : 
March in heavenly armour clad ;

Fight, nor think the battle long, 
Soon shall victory wake your song. 
Onward then to glory move ; 
More than conquerors ye shall prove ! 
Though opposed by many a foe,

"Come to me," saith One, "and coming. 
Be at rest !" 

2 Hath He marks to lead me to Him, 

If He be my guide ?

And His Side." 

3 Hath He Diadem as Monarch 

That His Brow adorns ? 
" Yea, a Crown, in very surety, 
But of thorns." 



4 If I find Him, if I follow, 

What His guerdon here ? 
"Many a sorrow, many a labour, 
Many a tear." 

5 If I still hold closely to Him, 

What hath He at last? 
" Sorrow vanquished, labour ended, 
Jordan past." 

6 If I ask Him to receive me, 

Will He say me nay ! 
" Not till earth, and not till heaven 
Pass awav." 



7 Finding, following, keeping, struggling. 
Is He sure to bless ?

SING, my tongue, the glorious battle, 
Sing tlie last, the dread afiiray : 
O'er the Cross, the Victor's trophy, 

Sound the glad triumphal laj^ 
How, the pains of death enduring. 

Earth's Eedeemer won the day. 
He, our Maker, deeply grieving 

That the first-made Adam fell, 
"When he ate the fruit forbidden 

"Whose reward was death and hell, 
Marked e'en then this tree the ruin 

Of the first ti-ee to dispel. 
Thus the work for our salvation 

He ordained to be done ; 
To the traitor's art opposing 

Art yet deeper than his own ; 
Thence the remedy procuring 

Whence the fatal wound begun. 
Therefore, when at length the fulness 

Of th' appointed time was come. 
He was sent, the world's Creator, 

From the Father's heavenly home, 
And was found in human fashion, 

Offspring of the Virgin's womb. 
Lo, He lies an Infant weeping, 

Where the narrow manger standi, 
"While the Mother-Maid His members 

"Wraps in mean and lowly bands. 
And the swaddling clothes is winding, 

Round His helpless Feet and Hands. 

Part n. 

NOW the thirty years accomplished 
Which on earth He v/iUed to see. 



Hymn 64, 

Born for this, He meets His passion. 
Gives Himself an offering free ; 

On the Cross the Lamb is lifted. 
There the Sacrifice to be. 

7 There the nails and spear He suffers, 
Vinegar, and gall, and reed : 

From His sacred body pierced 
Blood and Water both proceed : 

Precious flood , which all creation 
From the stain of ein hath freed. 

8 Faithful Cross, above all others 
One and only noble Tree, 

None in foliage, none in blossom. 
None in fruit thy peer may be ; 

Sweetest wood, and cweetest iron : 
Sweetest weight is hung on thee. 

9 Bend, 0, lofty Tree, thy branches, 
Thy too rigid sinews bend : 

And awhile the stubbcrn hardness, 
"Which thy birth bestowed, suspend ; 

And the Limbs of heaven's high Monarch 
Gently on thine arms extend. 

10 Thou alone wast counted worthy 
This world's ransom to sustain. 

That a shipwrecked race for ever 
Might a port of refuge gain. 

With the sacred Blood anointed 
Of the Lamb for sinners slain. 

11 Praise and honour to the Fatheb, 
Praise and honour to the Son, 

Praise and honour to the Spieit, 
Ever Three and ever One, 



One in might, and one in glorj-. 
While eternal ages run. Amen.

Mymn 56, 



1 OAVIGUK, by Thy deep compassion, 
^-5 So unmeasur'd, so Divine ; 

By that bitter, bitter passion, 
By that crimson Cross of Thine ; 

By the woes Thy love once tasted, 
In this sin-marr'd world below, 

Succour those in tribulation ; 
Succour those in sorrow now. 

2 Thou, who wast so sorely burden'd, 

Help the weak that are oppress'd ; 
Sanctify all earthly crosses, 

, For the coming day of rest. 
Give the weak a trustful spirit. 

That will always lean on Thee, 
And in storms of deep affliction 

Still Thy gracious presence see. 



3 Cheer the weak ones who are bending, 

'Neath a weary burden now ; 
Lift the pallid faces upward. 

Smooth the care-worn fun-ow'd brow. 
Send a bright and hopeful message 

To each tried and tempted heart, 
That the thick and gloomy shadows 

At that sunshine may depart. 

4 Tell them Thou canst sec aU sorrow. 

In this world's rough wilderness ; 
Tell them Thou art near to succom-, 

Near to comfort and to bless ; 
Tell them of Thy Cross and passion, 

TeU them of Thy trials sore ; 
Tell them of the Angel city, 

Where is joy for evermore. Amen.

Hymn 68, 



WHEN I survey the wondrous cross, 
On which the Prince of Glory died. 
My richest gain I count but loos, 

And pour contempt on all my pride. 
Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast. 

Save in the cross of Christ my God : 
All the vain things that charm me most, 
I sacrifice them to Thy blood. 

DEVOTION. 



See ! from His head. His hands. His feet. 

Sorrow and love flow mingled down : 
Did e'er such love and sorrow meet ? 

Or thorns compose a Saviour's crown ? 
"Were the whole realm of nature mine, 

That were a tribute far too small ; 
Love so amazing, so divine, 

Demands my life, my soul, my all. Amen.

1 TX7E sing the praise of Him Who died, 

' ' Of Him Y/ho died upon the Cross 
The sinner's hope let men deride. 
For this we count the world but loss. 

2 Inscribed upon the Cross we see, 

In shining letters, God is love ; 
He bears our sins upon the Tree, 
He brings us mercy from above. 

3 The Cross ! it takes our guilt away ; 

It holds the fainting spirit up ; 

It cheers with hope the gloomy day, 

And sweetens everj' bitter cup. 



4 It makes the timid spirit brave, 

And nerves the feeble arm for fight ; 
It takes its terror fi'om the grave. 

And gilds the bed of death with light. 

5 The balm of life, the cure of woe. 

The measure and the pledge of love, 
The sinner's refuge here below. 

The Augels' theme in heaven above. 
C To Christ, Who won for sinners grace 
By bitter grief and anguish sore, 
Be praise from all the ransomed race 
For ever and for evermore. Amen.

Hymn 

SACKED Head, now wounded, 

With grief and shame bowed down ; 
Now scornfully surrounded, 

With thorns, Thine only crown. 
O Sacred Head, what glory. 

What bliss till now was Thine ! 
Yet, though despised and goiy, 

I joy to call Thee mine. 
What Thou, my Loed, hast suffered, 

Was all for sinners' gain : 
Mine, mine was the transgression, 

But Thine the deadly pain. 
Lo, here I fall, my Saviour ! 

'Tis I deser^'e Thy place ; 
Look on me with Thy favour, 

Vouchsafe to me Thy grace, 
The joy can ne'er be spoken, 

Above all joys beside, 
Wlien in Thy body broken, 

I thus with safety hide. 

"BREAD OF THE WORLD." 



71. ^' ''^' 

Loed of my life, desiring 

Thy gloiy now to see. 
Beside Thy Cross expiring 

I'd breathe my soul to Thee ! 
What language shall I borrow 

To thank Thee, dearest Friend, 
For this Thy dying sori'ow, 

Thy pity without end ! 
O make me Thine for ever ; 

And should I fainting be, 
Loed. let me never, never 

Outlive my love for Thee ! 
Be near me when I'm dying, 

O show Thy Cross to me ! 
And to my succour flj'ing. 

Come, Loed, and set me free ! 
These eyes, new ftdth receiving, 

From Jesus shall not move. 
For he who dies believing. 

Dies safely through Thy love ! Amen.

I READ of the -vvorld, in mercy broken, 
Wine of the soul, in mercy shed, 
By whom the -words of hfo were spoken. 
And in whose death our sins are dead :

Look on the tears by sinners shed. 
And be Thy least to us the token. 
That by Thy grace our souls are fed.

Hymn 75, 



1 nEOWNS of glory ever bright 

v^ Rest upon the Conqueror's Head ; 
Crowns of glory are His right, 
His, Who liveth and was dead. 

2 He subdued the powers of hell, 

In the fight He stood alone ; 
All His foes before Him fell, 
By His single Arm o'erthrown. 



3 His the battle. His the toil, 

His the honours of the day 
His the glory and the spoil , 
Jesus bears them all away. 

4 Now proclaim His deeds afar. 

Fill the world \\-ith His renown ; 
His alone the Victor's car, 

His the everlasting Crown. Amen.

CHRIST the Loed is risen to-day, 
Sons of men and angels say : 
Raise your joys and triumphs high, 
Sing, je heavens, and earth reply. 
Love's redeeming work is done. 
Fought the fight, the victory won ; 
Jesu's agony is o'er, 
Darkness veils the earth no more. 



Vain the stone, the watch, the seal, 
Chkist has burst the gates of hell ; 
Death in vain forbids Him rise 
Christ hath open'd paradise. 
Soar we now where Christ hath led 
Following our exalted Head ; 
Made like Him, like Him we rise : 
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies.

YE choirs of new Jersualem, 
Your sweetest notes employ, 
The Paschal victory to hymn 

In strains of holy joy. 
For Judah's Lion bursts His chains, 

Crushing the serpent's head ; 
And cries aloud thro' death's domains 

To wake the imprisoned dead. 
Devouring depths of hell tiieir prey 

At His command restore ; 
His ransomed hosts pursue their way 

Where Jesus goes before.

To Him all power is given ; 
To Him in one communion bow 
All saints in earth and heaven. 

5 "While we, His soldiers, praise our King, 

His mercy we implore, 
Within His palace bright to bring 
And keep us evermore. 

6 All glory to the Father be ; 

All glory to the Son ; 
All glory, Holy Ghost, to Thee, 
While endless ages run. Alleluia. Amen.

JESUS lives ! no longer now 
Can thy terrors. Death, appal us ; 
Jesus lives, by this we know 

Thou, O Grave, canst not entlural us. 
Jesus lives ! henceforth is death 

But the g^,te of Life immortal ; 
This shall calm our trembling breath 

When we pass its gloomy portal. 
Jesus lives ! for us He died ; 

Then, alone to Jesus living.

Pure in heart may we abide, 

Glory to our Saviour giving. 
Jesus lives ! our hearts know well 

Nought from us His love shaU sever : 
Life, nor death, nor powers of hell 

Tear us from His keeping ever. 
Jesus lives ! to Him the Throne 

Over all the world is given : 
May we go where He is gone^ 

Rest and reign with Him in heaven.

Hymn SI, 



1 CEE thee Conqueror mounts in triumph 
^^ See the King in royal state 

Eiding on the clouds His chariot 
To His heavenly palace gate : 

Hark, the choirs of angel voices 
Joyful Alleluias sing, 

And the portals high are lifted 
To receive their heavenly King. 

2 Who is this that comes in glory, 

"With the trump of jubilee ? 
Lord of battles, God of armies, 

He has gained the victory ; 
He Who on the Cross did suiTer, 

He Who from the grave arose. 
He has vanquished sin and Satan, 

He by death has spoiled His foes. 

3 While He lifts His hands in blessing, 

He is parted from His friends ; 
"While their eager eyes behold Him, 

He upon the clouds ascends ; 
He Who walked ^vithGoD, and pleased Him, 

Preaching truth and doom to come, 
He, our Enoch, is translated 

To His everlasting home. l 



4 Xow our heavenly Aaron enters, 

With His Blood, within the veil : 
Joshua now is come to Canaan, 

And the kings before Him quail : 
Kow He plants the tribes of Israel 

In their promised resting-place ; 
Kow our gi-eat Ehjah ofiers 

Double portion of His grace. 

5 He has raised our human nature 

In the clouds to God's right hand 
There we sit in heavenly places. 

There with Him in glory stand : 
Jesus reigns, adored by angels ; 

Man with God is on the throne : 
Mighty LoED, in Thine Ascension 

We by feiith behold our own. 

6 Glory be to God the Father ; 

Glory be to God the Sox, 
Dying, risen, ascending for us. 

Who the heavenly realm has won 
Glory to the Holy Spirit : 

To One God in Persons Three, 
Glory in both earth and heaven, 

Glory, endless glory be. Amen.

CHUIST is gone up : yet ere lie passed 
From earth in heaven to reign. 
He formed one holy Church to last 

Till He should come again. 
His Twelve Apostles first He made 

His Ministers of grace ; 
And they their hands on others laid. 

To fill in turn their place. 
So age by age, and year by year. 

His grace was handed on ;

Hymn 83. 

And still the Holy Church is here, 
Although her Loed is gone, 
4 YThate'er we do, whate'er we say. 
By her we must be led ; 

For though our Loed is for away, 
His Church is in His stead. 



5 Let those find pardon, Loed, from Thee, 
Whose love to her is cold ; 
And bring them in, and let there be 
One Shepherd and one fold. Amen.

CHRIST has ascended up again, 
Unto His heavenly place ; 
And we must wait a little while, 

Before we see His face : 
As sometimes on a summer's djxy. 

The gathering winds grow loud ; 
And for awhile the big round siui 

Is hid behind a cloud. 
And where our Loed is gon'^ before, 

There shall we one day be ; 



When Cheist shall come and gather all 

His own, by land and sea. 
Tlien often should our hearts look ut) 

To heaven so high and fair ; 
And think about that blessed place. 

Since we are going there. 
Look thro' Thy cloud, ascended Loed, 

And lead Thy children on ; 
That wo may learn to love and seek. 
The Heaven where Thou art gone. Amen.

1 TXTHEN God of old came down from 

VV heaven, 
In power and wratli He came ; 

Before His feet the clouds were riven, 
Half darkness and half flame : 

2 But, when He came a second time, 

He came in power and love ; 
Softer than gale at morning prime 
Hovered His holy dove. 

3 The fires, that rushed on Sinai down 

In sudden torrents dread, 
Now gently light, a glorious crown, 
On every sainted head. 

4 And as on Israel' awe-struck ear 

The voice exceeding loud,

Only in stubborn hearts and wiUs 
No place for It is found.

1 THE Twelve Apostles? of tlie Loed, 
J- Were met, obedient to His word, 
With all the faithful ones who came 

To keep the Feast of Weeks with them. 
Their risen Loed to Heaven had gone, 
And they were left behind alone — 
To tarry at Jerusalem 
And wait the blessing promised them. 

2 All sudden, from the Heavens, a sound, 
As of a tempest, burst around ; 

And lambent tongues of fierj'- red 
Sat on each Apostolic head. 
Then God, the Holy Comeoetee, 
In tender love descended there ; 
And, moving in the waiting throng, 
Filled every heart — loosed every tongne. 



3 One speech was given to every race — 
One language found, for every place — 
Heart spoke to heart, soul answered soul, 
One blessed Spirit moved the whole, 
And now, where'er the Saviour's Bride 
Goes forth 'mong men at Whitsuntide, 
One tongue She has, in East or West, 
To sing His praise. She loves the best. 

4 The burden of Her joyous song. 
That year by year is rolled along. 
Is ' ' Cheist is risen, and, on high 
A'scended, reigns no more to die." 
While, orphaned once, no more they weep, 
Who now the Holy Feast do keep — 
For every heart — in every home 

The Blessed Comtoetee is come. Amen.

1 TTOW bright those glorious spirits shine! 
-tl Whence all their white array ? 

How came they to the blissful seats 
Of everlasting day? 

2 Lo, these are they from sufferings great 

Who came to realms of light : 
And in the Blood of Christ have washed 
Those robes which shine so bright. 

3 Now with triumphal palms they stand 

Before the throne on high, 
And serve the God they love amidst 
The glories of the sky. 



4 Hunger and thirst are felt no more, 

Nor sun with scorching ray ; 
God is their Sun, Whose cheering beams 
Diffuse eternal day. 

5 The Lamb, Who reigns upon the throne, 

Shall o'er them still preside, 
Feed them with nourishment divine. 
And all their footsteps guide. 

6 'Mid pastures green He'll lead His flock, 

Where living streams appear ; 
And God the Loed from every eye 
Shall wipe off every tear. 



7 To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, 
The God Whom we adore ; 
Be glory, as it was, is now, 

And shall be evermore. Amen.

Hymn 99, 



1 Tj^rEST of Martyrs, Thou whose name 
•»- Doth thy golden crown proclairc, 
Not of flowers that fade away 

Weave we this Thy crown to-day. 

2 Bright the stones, which bruise thee, gleam. 
Sprinkled with Thy life-blood's stream ; 
Stars around thy painted head 

Never could such radiance shed. 

3 Every wound upon thy brow 
Sparkles with unearthly glow ; 
Like an angel's is Thy face 
Beaming with celestial grace. 



4 O how blessed first to be 

Slain for Him Who bled for thee ; 
First like Him in dying hour 
Witness to Ahnighty power ; 

5 First to follow where He trod 
Through the deep Red Sea of blood ; 
First ; but in Thy footsteps press 
Saints and martyrs numberless. 

6 Glory to the Fathes be. 
Glory, ViRGiN-BOEN. to Thee, 
Glory to the Holy Ghost, 

Praised by men and heavenly host. Amen.

Hymn 100. 



1 'T'ELE Son of God goes fortli to war, 
J- A kingly crown to gain ; 

His blood-red banner streams afar : 
Who follows in His train ? 

2 Wlio best can drink His cup of woe, 

Triumphant over pain ; 
Wlio patient bears His cross below, 
He follows in His train. 

3 The martyr first, whose eagle eye 

Could pierce beyond the grave ; 
Who saw his Master in the sky. 
And call'd on Him to save. 



[ 4 Like Him, with pardon on his tongue, 
j In midst of mortal pain, 

He pray'd for them that did the wrong : 
Who followed in His train ? 

5 A glorious band, the chosen few, 

On whom the Spieit came ; [knew. 
Twelve valiant saints, their hope they 
And mock'd the cross and flame. 

G They climb'd the steep ascent of heaven 
Though peril, toil, and pain : 
O God ! to us may grace be given 
To follow in their train. Amen.

1 'T'HOSE eternal bowers 
J- Man hath never trod, 
Those unfading flowers, 

Bound the throne of Gor> 
"Who may hope to gain them, 

After weary fight ? 
Who at length attain them.

All on earthly ground. 
He, who like the martyrs. 

Says, * * I will be crowned : 
He, whose one oblation 

Is a hfe of love ; 
Clinging to the nation 

Of the blest above. 



3 Shame upon you, legions 

Of the Heavenly King, 
Denizens of regions 

Past imagining ! 
"What, with pipe and tabour 

Fool away the light, 
"Wlien He bids you labour. 

When He tells you "Fight ! 

4 While I do my duty 

Struggling through the tide. 
Whisper- Thou of beauty 

On the other side ! 
Tell vrho will the story 

Of our now distress ; 
O the future glor^- ! 

O the loveliness !

'V This innumerable throng, 
Ptound the altar, night and day 

Tunitiw their triumphant song? 
Worthy is the Lamb once slain, 

Blessing, honour, glory, power, 
Wisdom, riches, to obtain ; 

Kew dominion every hour. 

2 These though fiery trials trod ; 

These from great affliction came 
Now before the throne of God, 
Seal'd with his eternal Name : 



Clad in raiment pure and white, 
Victor palms in every hand, 

Through their great Eedeemer's might 
More that conquerors they stand. 

Hunger, thirst, disease unknown, 

On immortal fruits they feed ; 
Thsm the LA:iiiB amic'st the throne 

Shall to living fountaias lead : 
Joy and gladness banish sighs ; 

Perfect love dispels their fears ; 
And, for ever from their eyes 

God shall wipe away their tears.

All of His grace partake.

Hymn 105, 



SAVIOUE, sprinkle many nations, 
Fruitful let Thy sorrows be, 
By Thy pains and consolations, 

Draw the Gentiles unto Thee. 
Of Thy Cross the wondrous story. 

Be it to the nations told ; 
Let them see Thee in Thy glory, 

And Thy mercy manifold. 
Far and wide, though all unknowing, 

Pants for Thee each mortal breast ; 
Human tears for Thee are flowing, 

Human hearts in Thee would rest, 



Thirsting, as for dews of even. 

As the new-mown grass for rain; 
Thee they seek, as God of Heaven, « 

Thee, as Man, for sinners slain. 
Sayiouk, lo, the isles are waiting. 

Stretched the hand, and strained the 
For Thy Spieit, new creating, [sight, 

Love's pure flame and wisdom's light ; 
Give the word, and of the preacher 

Speed the foot, and touch the tongue, 
Till on earth by every creature 

Glory to the Lamb be sung. Amen.

All the heavenly hosts adore Thee. 
Seated at Thy Father's Side : 



There for sinners Thou art pleading, 
** Spare them yet another year ;" 

ThoH for Saints art interceding, 
Till in glory they appear. 

4 Worship, honour, power, and blessing. 

Thou art worthy to receive : 
Loudest praises, without ceasing, 

Meet it is for us to give : 
Help, ye bright Angelic spirits, 

Bring your sweetest, noblest lays ; 
Help to sing our Jesu's merits. 

Help to chant Immanuel's praise. 

5 Soon we shall, with those in glory, 

His transcendent grace relate ; 
Gladly sing the amazing story 

Of His dying love so great : 
Li that blessed contemplation 

We for evermore shall dwell, 
C^o^vned with bliss and consolation 

Such as none below can telL Amen,

Hymn 115. 

1 TJEAR troubled heart ! be not afraid ! 
-L' Thy Sayioub speaks to Thee a word ; 
To fainting ones like Thee— I said, 

Believe in me, the same as God 

Dear troubled heart ! be not afraid : 

Believe in me, the same as God. 

2 Dear troubled heart ! be not afraid ! 

My Fathek's House unfolds its door ; 
For many dwellers it was made. 

To greet you there I've gone before. 
Dear troubled heart ! be not afraid : 

To greet you there I've gone before. 

3 Dear troubled heart ! be not afraid ! 

Believe thy Lord — Oh ! take his word 
Death draws you thi-o' his chilling shade, 

But I am there, and I am God. 
Dear troubled heart ! be not afraid : 

For I am there, and I am God. 

4 Dear troubled heart ! be not afraid ! 

Who sleep in love, to love I wake 
Whate'er was wrong, I'll not upbraid : 

A loving one I ne'er forsake. 
Dear troubled heart ! be not afraid ! 

A loving one I ne'er forsake.

Hymn 116, 



1 T HEABD the voice of Jesus say, 
J- ' ' Come unto me and rest ; 

Lay down, thou weary one, lay down 
Thy head upon My breast :" 

I came to Jesus as I was, 
All weary, worn, and sad ; 

I found in Him a resting-place, 
And He has made me glad. 

2 I heard the voice of Jesus say, 

' ' Behold, I freely give 
The living water, thirsty one, 

Stoop down, and drink, and live :" 



I came to Jesus, and I drank 

Of that life-giving stream ; [vived, 

My thirst was quenched, my soul re- 
And now I live in Him. 

3 I heard the voice of Jesus say, 

'• I am this dark world's Light ; 
Look unto Me, thy mom shall rise, 

And all thy day be bright :" 
I looked to Jesus, and I found 

In Him my Star, my Sun ; 
And in that Light of life I'll walk 

Till travelling days are done. Amen.

I on His breast recline. 

I love the Name of Jesus, 

Immanuel, Ckrist, the Lord ; 

Like fragrance on the breezes, 
His Name abroad is poured. 

4 I long to be like Jesus, 
Meek, lovely, lowly, mild ; 

I long to be like Jesus, 
The Father's Holy Child. 

I long to be with Jesus, 
Amid the heavenly throng, 

To sing with saints His praises, 
To learn the Angels' song. Amen. 

Redhead.

TSOU art the "Way ; by Thee alone 
From sin and death we flee ; 
And he who would the Father seek 

Must seek Him, Lord, by Thee. 
Thou art the Truth ; Thy word alone 

True wisdom can impart ; 
Thou only canst inform the mind. 
And purify the heart. 



Hymn 139, 



Thou art the Life ; the rending tomb 

Proclaims Thy conquering arm ; 
And those who put their trust in Thee 

Nor death nor hell shall harm. 
Thou art the Way, the Truth, the Life, 

Grant us that Way to know. 
That Truth to keep, that Life to win, 

Whose joys eternal flow. Amen.

^ Look upon a little child ; 
Pity my simplicity ; 

Suffer me to come to Thee. 

2 Put Thy hands upon my head ; 
Let me in Thine arms be stayed ; 
Let me lean upon Thy breast ; 
Lull me, lull me, Lokd, to rest. 

3 Hold me fast in Thine embrace ; 
Let me see Thy smiling face ; 
Give me, Loed, Thy blessing give ; 
Pray for me, and I shall live. 

4 Lamb of God, I look to Thee, 
Thou shalt my example be ; 
Thou art gentle, meek, and mild ; 
Thou wast once a little child.

God my Heavenly Fathek's will ; 
Never His good Spieit grieve, 
Only to His glory live. 

6 Loving Jesu, gentle Lamb, 
In Thy gracious hands I am ; 
Make me, Savioue, what Thou art, 
Live Thyself within my heart.

Serve Thee all my happy days ; 
Then the world shall always see 
Cheist, the holy Child, in me.

Hymn 141, 



TENDEK Shepherd, Thou hast stilled 
Now Thy little lamb's brief weeping 
Ah, how peaceful, pale, and mild, 
In its narrow bed 'tis sleeping, 
And no sigh of anguish sore 
Heaves that little bosom more. 



2 In this world of care and pain, 

Lord, Thou wouldst no longer leave it; 
To the simny, heavenly plain 

Thou dost now with joy receive it ; 
Clothed in robes of spotless white, 
Now it dwells with Thee in light. . 

3 Ah, LoED Jesu, grant that we 

Where it lives may soon be Uving, 
And the lovely pastures see 

That its heavenly food are giving ; 
Then the gain of death we prove, 
Though Thou take what most we love. Amen. 



THE GOOD SHEPHSED 




Hymn 

1 'T'SE LoED my pasture shall prepare, 
_J- And feed me with a shepherd's care 
His presence shall my wants supply, 
And guard me with a watchful eye ; 
My noon-day walks He shall attend, 
And all my midnight hours defend. 

2 When in the sultry glebe I faint, 
Or on the thirsty mountain pant, 
To fertile vales and dewy meads 



142. 



My weary, wandering steps He leads ; 
Where peaceful rivers, soft and slow, 
Amid the verdant landscape How. 
3 Though in the poths of death I tread. 
With gloomy horrors overspread. 
My steadfast heart shall fear no ill. 
For Thou, O Loed, art with me still ! 
Thy friendly crook shall give me aid, 
iind guide me through the dreadful shade.

1 TXTHEN morning gilds the skies, 

» » My heart awaking cries 
May Jesus Chkist be praised. 

Alike at work and prayer 

To Jesus I repair ; 

May Jesus Christ be praised. 

2 "Whene'er the sweet church bell 
Peals over hill and dell, 

May Jesus Christ be praised. 
O hark to what it sings, 
As joy on sly it rings, 

May Jesus Cheist be praised. 

3 My tongue shall never tire 
Of chanting with the choir 

May Jesus Chbist be praised : 
This song of sacred joy. 
It never seems to cloy ; 

May Jesus Christ be praised. 

4 When sleep her balm denies, 
My silent Spirit sighs 

May Jesus Christ be praised 
When evil thoughts molest, 
With this I shield my breast, 

May Jesus Christ be praised. 



5 Does sadness fill my mind ? 
A solace here I find, 

May Jesus Christ be praised : 
Or fades my earthly bliss ? 
My comfort still is this. 

May Jesus Christ be praised. 

6 The night becomes as day. 
When from the heart we say 

May Jesus Christ be praised : 
The powers of darkness fear, 
TVTien this sweet chant they hear, 

May Jesus Christ be praised. 

7 In heaven's eternal bliss 
The loveliest strain is this, 

May Jesus Christ bo praised : 
Let earth, and sea, and sky 
From depth to height reply 

May Jesus Christ be praised. 

8 Be this, while life is mine, 
My canticle divine, 

!May Jesus CnmsT be praised : 
Bo this th'etemal song, 
Through all the ages on, 

May Jesus Christ be praised. Amen.

By cool Siloam's shady rill 

The lily must decay ! 
The rose, that blooms beneath the hill. 

Must shortly fade away.

Of man's maturer age 
Will shak^ the soul with sorrow's power, 
And stormy passions rage.

Within Thy Father's shrine ; 
Whose years, with changeless virtue 
Were all alike divine ; [crowned,

In childhood, manhood, age, and death,

2 Little eyes to read the Bible,

Little feet to walk His ways ; 
Little bodies to be temples

"What can we do for Jesu's sake 

Who is so high and good and great ?

Laid down for Him their infant life, 
And martyrs brave and patient saints 

Have stood for Him in fire and strife. 



We wear the cross they wore of old, 7 

Our hps have learned like vows to make ; . 
We need not die ; we cannot fight, 

What may we do for Jesu's sake ? 
O, day by day. each Christian child 8 

Has much to do, without, within ; 
A death to die for Jesu's sake, 

A weary war to wage with sin. 



Hymn 156, 

When deep within our swelling hearts 

The thoughts of pride and anger rise ; 
When bitter words are on our tongues, 

And tears of passion in our eyes ; 
Then we may stay the angry blow, 
I Then we may check the hasty word ; 

Give gentle answers back again, 
j And fight a battle for our Lord. 

With smiles of peace, and looks of love. 

Light in our dwellings we may make, 
Bid kind good humour brighten there, 

And do all still for Jesu's sake. 



There's not a child so small and weak 
But has his little cross to take ; 

His little work of love and praise 

That he may do for Jesu's sake. Amen.

LIKE a young flower of early May, 
That children pluck and leave to die, 
The ruler's little daughter lay, 

With cold pale cheeks and sunken eye. 
Out-stretched upon the little bed, 

Where oft she slumbered calm and light, 
They left the maiden stiff and dead ; 
||: No faded blossom half so white. :]| 



The childless mother weepeth sore, 

The mourners make a louder moan ; 
But Christ has past the chamber door. 
And chid the mourners' scoffing tone. 
The hand that clothes the hawthorn tree, 
When spring returns to deck the plain, 
Gives warm and bright that human flower 
II : Back to her mother's breast again. :|| 



3 0, work of joy ! O, work of love ! 

He holds her hand. He bids her rise. 
Her lip grows red, the eyelids move. 

The child looks up with wondering eyes. 
Then who should fear a dpng bed. 

Or who in hopeless sorrow weep, 
Since Jesus stands beside his dead,

Yes ! e'en me, e'en me He snatchetli 

From the perils of the way. 
Yes ! for me He standeth pleading 

At the mercy-seat above ; 



Ever for me interceding. 
Constant in untiriug love. 

4 Yes! in me, in me He dwelleth, 

I in Him, and He in me ; 
And my empty soul He filleth, 
Here, and through Eternity. 

5 Thus I wait for His returning, 

Singing all the way to heaven ; 
Such the joyful song of morning. 
Such the joyful song of even.

HyniM 160, 



1 TTTITHIN the Temple's hallowed waUs, 

VY How meekly sat the Holy Child, 
And listened when the Doctors taught, 
And questioned soft and mild. 

2 He did His Fatheb's work betimes, 

He loved -svithin His courts to stay, 
Wiiile three long days the Mother trod, 
Alone her homeward way. 

3 Oh ! shame on any Christian child, 

Who does not love the house of prayer; 
"Who goes with cold, unwilling heart, 
To serve his Fathee there; 



4 Who takes no heed when holy words 

Are spoken to his listless ears, 
Nor ever questions in his heart. 
What mean the things he hears. 

5 Come let him learn -what Jesus did, 

And love to trace, with wondering eyes, 
His perfect works, His holy "ways, 
Who was so early wise. 

6 And let him ask of God in heaven, 

A spirit teachable and mild, 

A simple heart to learn and love. 

Like that sweet Holy Child.

Listen from Thy lofty seat ; 
Hear, O hear our humble crj' ; 

Guide, guide our wandering feet. 
Young and erring travellers, we 

All our dangers do not know ; 
Scarcelv fear the stormy sea. 

Hardly feel the tempest blow. 
Jesu, lover of the young. 

Cleanse us with Thy love divine ; 



Ere the tide of sin grow strong. 
Save us, keep us, make us Thine ! 

4 Let us ever hear Thy voice ; 

Ask Thy counsel day by day ; 
Saints ond angels will rejoice. 
If we walk in Wisdom's way. 

5 Saviour, give us faith, and pour 

Hope and love on every soul : 
Hope, till time shall be lio mon^ ;

Hymn 163. 



WHEN the sunny mom is brinsjing 
Light and beauty to the earth, 
When the birds are gaily singing, 

Grateful for the day's glad birth, 
Then's the hour of meditation 

On our Father's works and ways, 
Then's the tune for all creation 
To express His wond'rous praise. 



When the lovely spring is giving 
Life and youth to ev'ry scene, 
When the world, again reviving, 

Wears its garb of peaceful green. 
Then should man, with glad emotion, 

Gaze upon the flow'ry sod. 
And our hearts with warm devotion 
Then should worship nature's God. 



3 And, when life's sweet mom is glowing. 

When life's spring is gay and bright, — 
Youth and health on us iDCstowing 

Active limbs and spirits light, — 
Then, O Lokd, with fervour kneeling, 

We would make Thy will our own ! 
Ev'ry thought, and wish, and feeling, 

Laying at our Fatheu's throne. Amen.

FIERCELY came the tempest sweeping, 
Down the lake of Galilee ; 
But the ship where Christ lay sleeping, 

Might not sink in that wild sea. 
When He rose the tempest chiding, 

When He bade the waters rest ; 
Calm the little ship went gliding 
On the blue lake's quiet breast 



And the white waves rushing past her, 

Eound her keel lay smooth and still ; 
For the wilds waves knew their Master ; 

And the waves obeyed His will. 
Thou who heard'st those seamen pleading, 

Waking at their anguish cry — 
Sleeping not now, when comfort needing 

Saviour, unto Thee, we fly. 



3 When at night our homes are shaken, 

And the howling winds we hear — 
As in terror we awaken. 

Keep us safe from harm and fear. 
When the waves of pride, or anger ; 

Eise to vex our hearts within ; 
Keep us from a greater danger. 

From the passion storms of sin. Amen.

1 p LORIOUS things of Thee are spoken, 
VT Zion, City of our God : 

He Whose word cannot be broken, 
Formed thee for His own abode. 

On the Rock of Ages founded, 
What can shake thy sure repose ? 

With salvation's walls surrounded, 
Thou mayest smile at aU thy foes. 

2 See the streams of living waters, 

Springing from eternal love. 
Well supply thy sons and daughters, 

And all fear of want remove : 
Wlio can faint, wlule such a river 

Ever flows their thirst to assuage ? 
Grace, which hke the Lor.D the Giver, 

Never fails from age to age. 



3 Ecund each habitation hovering, 

See the cloud and fire appear, 
For a glory and a covering. 

Showing that the Lord is near ; 
Thus deriving from their banner 

Light by night and shade by day, 
Safe they feed upon the manna 

WTiich He give them when they pray. 

4 Blest inhabitants of Zion, 

Washed in the Redeemer's Blood, 
Jesus, Whom their souls rely on , 

Makes them kings and priests to God. 
'Tis His love His people raises, 

Over self to reign as kings ; 
And as priests, His solemn praises 

Each for a thankoffenng brings. 



Saviout., if of Zion's City 

I, through grace, a member am, 
Let the world deride or pity, 

I will glory in Thy Name. 
Fading is the worldling's pleasure. 

All his boasted pomp and show : 
Solid joys and lasting treasure 

None but Zion's children know. Amen.

J-*' Rejoice, give thanks and sing ; 
Your festal banner wave on high, 
The Cross of Chkist your King. 

2 Bright youth and snow-crowned age, 

Strong men and maidens meek, 

Kaise high your free exulting song, 

God's wondrous praises speak. 

3 Yes, onward, onward still, 

With hymn, and chant, and song. 
Through gate, and porch, and column'd 
The hallo w'd pathways throng, [aisle, 

4 With all the angel choirs. 

With all the saints on earth, 
Pour out the strains of joy and bliss, 
True rapture, noblest mirth. 

5 Your clear Hosannas raise, 

And Alleluias loud ; 
Whilst answering echoes upward fioat, 
Like wreaths of incense cloud. 



6 With voice as full and strong 

As ocean's surging praise, 
Send forth the hymns our fathers loved, 
The psalms of ancient days. 

7 Yes, on, through life's long path, 

Still chanting as they go, 
From youth to age, by night and day, 
In gladness and in woe. 

8 Still lift your standard high. 

Still march in firm array, 
As warriors through the darkness toil, 
Till dawns the golden day. 

9 At last the march shall end, 

The wearied ones shall rest. 
The pilgrims find the Father's House, 
Jerusalem the blest. 

10 Then on, ye pure in heart, 

Rejoice, give thanks, and sing ; 
Your festal banner wave on high, 
The Cross of Cheist your King. 



11 Praise Him Who reigns on high.

The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, 
One God for evermore. Amen.

Mf/inn 

1 T OED.with glowing heart rd praise Thee 
-L^ For the bliss Thy love bestows ; 

For the pardoning grace that saves me, 
And the peace that from it flows : 

Help, O God, my weak endeavour ; 
This dull soul to rapture raise : 

Thou must light the fl.ame, or never 
Can my love be warm'd to praise. 

2 Praise my soul, the God that sought thee. 

Wretched wanderer, far astray ; 
Found thee lost, and kindly brought thee 
From the paths of death away ; 



17 o. 

Praise, with love's devoutest feeling. 

Him who saw thy guilt-born fear. 
And, the light of hope revealing. 

Bade the blood-stain'd cross appear. 
1 Lord, this bosom's ardent feeling 

Yainly would my lips express : 
Low before Thy footstool kneeling, 

Deign Thy suppliant's prayer to bleps : 
Let Thy grace, my soul's chief treasure. 

Love's pure flame within me raise ; 
And, since words can never measure, 

Let my life show forth Thy praise. Amen. 



PROTECTION. 




SING, my soul. His wondrous love, 
Who, from yon bright throne above 
Ever watchful o'er our race. 
Still to man extends his grace. 
Heaven and earth by Him were made, 
AU is by His sceptre sway'd ; 
What are we that He should show 
So much love to us below ! 



170. 

I 3 God, the merciful and good, 
j Bought us with the Savioub's blood ; 
i And, to make our safety sure, 
Guides us by His Spirit pure. 
4 Sing, my soul, adore His Name, 
Let His glors' be thy theme : 
Praise him till He calls thee homo. 
Trust His love for all to rome. Amen.

Hymn 



1 OONGS of praise the angels sang, 
^ Heaven with Alleluias rang, 
When Jehovah's work begun, 
When He spake and it was done. 

2 Songs of praise awoke the morn 
When the Prince of Peace was born ; 
Songs of praise arose when He 
Captive led captivity, 

3 Heaven and earth must pass away. 
Songs of praise shall crown that day ; 
God will make new heaven and earth, 
Songs of praise shall hail their birth. 

4 And shall man alone be dumb 
Till that glorious kingdom come ? 



No, the Church delights to raise 
Psalms and hymns, and songs of praise. 

5 Saints below, with heart and voice. 
Still in songs of praise rejoice ; 
Learning here, by faith and love. 
Songs of praise to sing above. 

6 Borne upon their latest breath, 
Songs of praise shall conquer death , 
Then, amidst eternal joy. 

Songs of praise their powers employ. 

7 Hymns of gloiy, songs of praise, 
Fatheu, unto Thee we raise ; 
Jesu, glory unto Thee, 

With the Spirit, ever be. Amen.

Hymn 179, 



THE roseate hues of early dawn, 
The brightness of the day ; 
The crimson of the sunset sky, 

How fast they fade away ! 
Oh, for the pearly gates of heaven. 

Oh, for the golden floor, 
Oh, for the Sun of Righteousness, 
That setteth never more ! 



3 The highest hopes we cherish here, 

How fast they tire and faint ; 
How many a spot defiles the robe 

That wraps an earthly saint ! 
Oh. for a heart that never sins. 

Oh, for a soul washed white ; 
Oh, for a voice to praise our King, 

Nor weary day nor night. 



3 Here faith is ours, and heavenly hope 

And grace to lead us higher ; 
But there are perfectness, and peace 

Bej'ond our best desire. 
Oh, by Thy love, and anguish. Lord, 

And by Thy life laid down. 
Grant that we fall not from Thy grace, 

Nor cast away our crown. Amen.

PLEASANT are Thy courts above 
In the land of light and love ; 
Pleasant are Thy courts below 
In this land of sin and woe : 
O, my spirit longs and faints 
For the converse of Thy saints. 
For the brightness of Thy Face, 
For Thy fulness, God of grace. 

Happy birds that sing and fly 
Eound Thy Altars, O most High ; 
Happy souls that find a rest 
In a heavenly Father's breast ; 
Like the wandering dove that found 
No repose on earth around. 
They can to their ark repair, 
And enjoy it ever there. 



3 Happy souls, their praises flow 
Even in this vale of woe ; - 
Waters in the desert rise, 
Manna feeds them from the skies ; 
On they go from strength to strength. 
Till they reach Thy throne at length. 
At Thy feet adoring fall, 

"Who hast led them safe through all. 

4 Lord, be mine this prize to win, 
Guide me through a world of sin, 
Keep me by Thy saving grace ; 
Give me at Thy side a place ; 
Sun and shield alike Thou art. 
Guide and guard my erring heart : 
Grace and glory flow from Thee ; 
Shower, O shower them, Lord, on me.

Ail jubilant with song, 
And bright with many an angel, 
And all the martyr throng : 

4 The Prince is ever in them, 

The daylight is serene ; 
The pastures of the blessed 
Are decked in glorious sheen. 

5 There is the throne of David ; 

And there, from care released, 



The shout of them that triumph. 
The song of them that feast ; 

6 And they, who with their Leader 
Have conquered in the fight, 
For ever and for ever 

Are clad in robes of white.

For very love, beholding 

Thy happy name, they weep : 

2 The mention of Thy g' ij 

Is unction to the breast, 
And medicine in sickness. 
And love, and life, and rest. 

3 O one, O only mansion ! 

O Paradise of joy! 
Where tears are ever banished, 
And smiles have no alloy : 

4 Beside Thy living waters 

All plants are, great and small ; 
The cedar of the forest, 
The hyssop of the vail. 

5 With jasper glow thy bulwarks ; 

Thy streets with emeralds blaze 



The sardius and the topaz 
Unite in thee their rays : 

6 Thy ageless walls are bonded 

^\'^ith amethyst unpriced : 
Thy Saints build ui3 its fabric, 
The Corner-stone is Chkist. 

7 The Cross is all thy splendour, 

The Crucified thy praise ; 
His laud and benediction 
Thy ransomed people raise. 

8 Thou hast no shore, fair ocean ! 

Thou hast no time, bright day ! 
Dear fountain of refreshment 
To pilgrims far away ! 

9 Upon the rock of Ages 

They raise thy holy tower ; 
Thine is the victor's laurel. 
And thine the golden dower.

1 y ERUSALEM on high 
♦I My song and city is, 
My home whene'er I die, 
The centre of my bliss : 
O happy place ! 
When shall I be. 
My God, with ITiee, 
To see Thy Face ? 



2 There dwells my Lobd, my King, 

Judged here unfit to live ! 
There Angels to Him sing. 
And lowly homage give ; 
O happy place, &c. 

3 The Patriarchs of old 

There from their travels cease ; 
The Prophets there behold 
Their longed-for Prince of Peace 
O happy place. &c. 

SOUTHWELL. 



Hymn 189. 

i The Lamb's Apostles there 
I might with joy behold. 
The hai-pers I might hear 
Harping on harps of gold ; 
O happy place, &c. 

5 The bleeding Martyrs, they 
Within these courts are found, 

Clothed in pure array. 
Their scars with glory crowned : 
O happy place, &c. 

6 Ah me ! ah me ! that I 
In Kedar's tents here stay : 

No place like that on high ; 
Lord, thither guide my way : 
O happy place, 
V\Tien shall I be. 
My God, with Thee, 
To see Thy Face ? Amen.

1 A HEAVENLY Jerusalem 



Eternal are they walls, 
And blessed are the chosen ones, 

That dwell within thy walls. 
Thou art the golden home of peace. 

Where Saints forever sing, 
The Seat of God's own heritage, 

The palace of our King. 



2 There God the Loud forever reigns, 

Himself of all the crown, 
The L-VMB, the Light, that shineth clear, 

And never goeth down ; 
Nought to this sent can e'er approach 

To break the saints' f^weet rest ; 
They praise their God for evermore, 

Nor day nor night they rest. Amen.

1 OAFE Home, safe Home in port 
^ Rent cordage, shattered deck. 
Torn sails, provisions short. 

And only not a wreck : 
But O the joy iipon the shore, 
To tell our voyage peiUs o'er ! 

2 The prize, the prize secure ! 

The athlete nearly fell ; 
Bare all ho cmild endure, 
And bare not al^^ays "well : 
But he may smile at troubles gone 
"Wlio sets the victor-garland on ! 

3 No more the foe can harm : 

No more of leaguer'd camp, 
And cry of night alarm, 

And need of ready lamp : 
And yet how nearly had he fail'd, — 
How nearly had that foe prevail'd ! 



Hipnn 192. 



The lamb is in the fold 

In perfect safety penn'd ; 
The lion once had hold. 

And thought to make an end ; 
But One came by with wounded Side, 
And for the sheei? the Shepherd died. 

5 The exile is at home ! — 

O nights and days of tears, 
longings not to roam, 

O sins and doubts and fears, — 
What matter now, when (so men say) 
The King has wiped those tears away? 

6 O happy, happy Biide ! 

Thy widowd hours are past, 
The Bridegroom at thv side. 

Thou all His Own at last ! 
The soiTow of thy former cup 
In full fruition swallow'd up !

SOIiDIEKS ! gird on all yoiir armour, 
Dailj' watch and strive and pray ; 
Fight the fight till life is ended ; 

Draw the sword, and smite, and slay. 
Leading your triumphant army, 
See the Cross move on before ! 
When His Church is all united, 
Chkist shall reign for evermore. 

Hosts of darkness prowl around us, — 

Thoughts and words and deeds miclean, 
Simdering, murmuring, undermining, 

^Vorking in the gloom unseen. 
Light shines out with power victorious, 

Sunbeams dance on sea and shore ; 
Hosts of darkness all are routed : 

Light is King for evermore ! 



3 Hosts of hatred hurl against us 

Malice, envy, pride and scorn ; 
By tlieir sects, and schisms, and errors, 

Lo ! the seamless Eobe is torn. 
Love beams forth with mighty sweetness, 

Jesu's Blood is ninning o'er ; 
Hatred quails, and shrinks, and changes : 

Love is King for evermore ! 

4 Hosts of Satan, tempting, fainting. 

Foul the very air we breathe ; — 
Striking, stinging, slandering, lying, 

Swarming up from hell beneath. 
Fiery chariots, flaming legions. 

Fill our heavens with flash and roar : 
Hosts of Satan flee confounded ; 

Cheist is King for evermore ! Amen.

2 The God of Abraham praise, 

At whose supreme command

My shield and'^tower. 

3 He by himself hath sworn, 

I on his oath depend, 
I shall, on angel-wings upborne, 

To heaven ascend : 
I shall behold His face, 

I shall His power adore, 
And sing the wonders of Eis grace 

For evermore.

His kingdom He maintains. 
And, glorious with His saints in light. 

For ever reigns.

1 T'HEEE is a Friend more tender true, 
-L Than brother e'er can be, 

Who when all others bid adieu. 
Remains the last to flee ; 
Cho. — ^Who, be their pathway bright or dim, 
Deserts not those who turn to Him. 

2 He is the Friend who changes not. 

In sickness or in health, 
Whether on earth our transient lot. 
Be poverty or wealth, 
Cho. — In joy or grief, contempt or fame. 
To all who seek Him still the same. 

3 Of earthly frieiids who finds them true, 

May boast a happy lot ; 
But happier stiU life's journey through. 
Is he who needs them not.

To feel we have, is bliss indeed.

Hymn 198, 



OH, how they softly rest, 
For aye each blessed one, 
Who now on Jesu's breast 

Sleeping, from us are gone. 
Softly their ashes lie, 

Under the grassy sod : 
They did not really die. 

They but v/cnt home to God. 



Yet 'tis no idle rest, 

No mere release from care ; 
What they lov'd here the best 

They are fulfilling there. 
There they in active love 

Their truest leisure find, 
And worship God above. 

And know His holy mmd. 



Yet are they often here, 

Yet do we meet again ; 
Our hearts they come to cheer, 

In work, in joy, in pain : 
And we to them are bound 

In closer union still. 
Whene'er with them we're found 

Doing the Father's wilL

WHEN little Samuel \voke, 
And heard bis Maker's voice, 
At ev'ry word He spoke 

How mucli did he rejoice ! 
O blessed, happy child, to find 
The God of heaven so near and kind ! 

If God would speak to me. 
And say He was my friend, 

How happy I should be ! 
0, how would I attend ! 

The smallest sin I then shoidd fear, 

If God Almighty were so near. 



Hymn 201.

And does He never speak ! 

yes ; for, in His word, 
He bids me come and seek 

The God that Samuel heard : 
In almost every page I see 
The God of Samuel calls to me. 

And I beneath His care 
May safely rest my head ; 

I know that God is there 
To guard my humble bed. 

And every sin I well may fear, 

Since Goio Almighty is so near. 



Like Samuel, let me say. 

Whene'er I read His word, 
" Speak, Lord ; I would obey 

" The voice that I have heard. 
* ' And when I in Thy house appear, 
"Speak, for Thy servant waits to hear.

1 T THIN^K, wlien I read that sweet story of old, 
-L Y/hen Jesus was here among men, 

Eow He called little children as lambs to His fold, 
I should like to have been wdth them then. 

2 I wish that His hands had been placed on my head. 

That His arms had been thrown around me, 
And that I might have seen His kind looks when He said, 
"Let the httle ones come unto me." 

3 Yet stiU to His footstool in prayer I may go, 

And ask for a share of His love ; 
And it I thus earnestly seek Him below, 
I shall see Him and hear Him above : 

4 In that beautiful place He has gone to prepare 

For all who are washed and forgiven ; 
And many dear children are gathering there, 
"For of such is the kingdom of heaven."

1 IITISTS are rising slowly,

Silence, calm and holy, 

Reigns o'er woods and fields. 

2 But while all is sleeping, 

Still the brook flows on ; 
Onward wildly sweeping 
Goes that restless one. 



Him the rustling willow 

Cannot soothe to rest ; 
He must seek a pillow 

On the ocean's breast. 
So when we have striven 

On and on through life ; 
We may find in heaven 

Rest from that long strife.

THE CKRISTIAN PILGRIMAGE.

Words and Harmony ty Rev. J, H. Hopkins, Jr. 




Hymn 204. 



1 T^ ORTH from Egypt's house of bondage, 
J- Calls us now the God of Love : 

See, the cloudy, fiery Pillar 
Marshals us the way we move ! 
God's right hand and holy arm 
Smote the realm that v.Tought us harm; 
Many a sign and mighty wonder 
Burst the tyrant's bands in sunder. 

2 When the sea spread out before us. 

And behind us raged our foe, 
Walls of waves stood firm as crystal. 

Till the ransomed Tribe passed through. 

Pharaoh's hordes at morn we found 

In the roaring waters drowned ; 
While, with timbrels and with dances, 
Our exulting host advances. 



3 From the top of stony Sinai 

God declares His perfect Law : 
Trumpet tones and fires and thunders 

Thrill the soul with trembhng awe. 

There the thirsting Flock complain, 

There the Eock is cleft in twain : 
And wherever Israel goeth 
Lo, the Living Water floweth ! 

4 On the Altar, mom and evening, 

Smokes the daily Sacrifice : 
Every dawn the luscious manna 

Freshly greets our longing eyes. 

O'er the golden mercy-seat 

Floats the cloud of incense sweet ; 
While the King, once slain and gory, 
Fills the silence with His glory. 



^roccsiisional J^gmns. 



169 



5 On before Him, in their order, 

March the priests, in rich array ; 
Loudly peal their silver trumpets, 

Signaling our onward way. 

Israel's ranks, in armour tried, 

Flash afar on every side. 
Standards set, and banners flying, 
All the foes of God defying. 

6 Drought and pestilence surround us ; 

Sinners tempt, and fiends deride : 
Midst the fiery flying serpents 

Lift we up the Crucified ! 

Murmurers, cowards, rebels, drones, 

Pave the desert with their bones : 
Lasts our Pilgrimage the longer ? 
Purer grows our host, and stronger ! 

7 What to us the scorns of Edom ? 

What the swords of Amalek ? 
While the prayerful hands are lilted 

No defeat our course shall check. 

Vain are Moab's lustful snares ; 

Vain are Balaam's hireling prayers .- 
God's unchanging truth confessing, 
All his curses turn to blessing. 



8 Now behold! the swelling Jordan, 

Eears alolt his waterj^ walls ; 
At the voice of Israel's shouting, 

Jericho in ruin falls. 

All the Promised Land is ours, 

Fields, and folds, and royal towers. 
Vineyards, groves, and snovv-y mountains. 
Seas, and ever-flowing fountains. 

9 There, enclosed in hills of beauty, 

Shiniug like a jewelled Bride, 
Stands Jerusalem the Golden, 

All her portals opened wide. 

There the King upon His Throne, 

Sees and claims us for his own ; 
Clothes us with His glory splendid : 
And our Pilgrimage is ended. 

10 Join we now the angelic chorus, 

Cherubim and Seraphim, 
Saints in light gone Home before us, 

Chaunting their triumphal hymn : — 

Holy, Holy, Holj^ Loed, 

Three in One, by all adored, 
Praise to Thy eternal merit. 
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.

Thy right hand hath crowned Thee 
King of Saints and Angels both : 

Call Thine armies round Thee. 

Shine forth in Thy splendour, 
Shine, bright Immanuel ! 
Thou that conquerest Death and Hell, 

Thou art our Defender. 



3 Vain Thy love, that long hath yearned ; 

Vain thy Blood, long flowing : 
Mercy now to -^Tath is turned, 

Love to vengeance glowing. 

From the Cross that bore Thee 
Now let thunderbolts flash forth, 
TiU Thy foes, in all the earth. 

Prostrate fall before Thee. 

4 Smite old Egypt's sevenfold flood, — 

Dry its streams unstable ; 
Smite Assyria's lustful brood ; 

Smite the pride of Babel ; 

Break the bands of Edom, — 
Break the tyrant's rod of power :

Give Thy people freedom !

ti Doth his successive journeys run ; 
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore. 
Till moons shall wax and wane no more. 

2 People and realms of every tongue 
Dwell on His love with sweetest song, 
And infant voices shall proclaim 
Their early blessings on His Name. 

3 Blessings abound where'er He reigns ; 
The prisoner leaps to lose his chains ; 
The wenry find eternal rest, 

And all the sous of want are blest. 

4 Let every creatiue rise and bring 
Pecuhar honours to our King 
Angels descend with songs again, 

And earth repeat the loud Amen. — Amen.

Note. — The following Tune is here given in Short Score for those who wish to sing it in harmony. 
"Wlien used as a Processional, however, it is well to sing it in Unison, in which ca.se the Organ Accompani- 
ment should be with full -chords, and as sustained as possible. A slew march time should be^ observed 
throughout. Where words are printed with an acceT,\ thus ; — "serried," "challenge," "banner;" it is 
meant that the note to which the unaccented syllable is s;ing should be shortened, and its length thrown 
into the accented one, as in syncopation. An instance will be found in the notes given to the word, 
"watchword," in verse 4. . ^ev. Gerard F. Cobb.

Hymn 216. 

Now a new Power has come on the earth 

A match for the armies of Hell : 
A Child is born who shall conquer the foe. 

And all the spirits of wickedness quell : 
For Mary's Son is the Mighty One 

Whom the prophets of God foretell. 

The stars of heaven still shine as at first 
They gleamed on this wonderful night : 

The bells of the citj^ of God peal out, 

And the Angels' song still ring in the height; 

And love still turns where the Godhead burns, 
Hid in Flesh from fleshly sight. 

Fiiith sees no longer the stable floor. 

The pavement of sapphire is there ; 
The clear light of Heaven streams out to the world 

And Angels of God are crowding the air ; 
And Heaven and earth, through the spotless Birth, 

Are at peace on this night so fair.

" Hither, page, and stand by me. 

If thou know'st it, telling, 
Yonder peasant who is he ? 

Where and what his dwelling ?" 
' ' Sire, he lives a good league hence. 

Underneath the mountain ; 
Eight against the forest fence, 

By Saint Agnes' fountain." 
" Bring me flesh, and bring me wine. 

Bring me pine-logs hither : 
" Thou and I will see him dine, 

When we bear then thither." 
Page and monarch forth they went, 

Forth they went to-gether : 
Througli the rude wind's wild lament 

And the bitter weather. 



" Sire, the night is darker now. 

And the wind blows stronger ; 
Fails my heart I know not how ; 

I can go no longer. ' 
*'Mark my footsteps, good my page 

Tread thou in them boldly : 
Thou shalt find the winter's rage 

Freeze thy blood less coldly." 
In his master's steps he trod, 

A^'here the snow lay dinted ; 
Heat was in the very' sod 

Which the Saint had printed. 
Therefore, Christian men, be sure, 

Wealth or rank possessing, 
Ye who now will bless the poor. 

Shall yourselves find blessing.

Up ! 'tis meet to welcome 

With a joyous lay 
Cheist, the King of Glory, 

Born for us to-day. 
Come, nor fear to seek Him, 

Childi-en though we be ; 
Once He said of children 

"Let them come to Me." 
In a manger lowly 

Sleeps the Heavenly Child ; 
O'er Him fondly bendeth 

Mary, Mother mild. 
Far above that stable, 

Up in Heaven so high, 
One bright star out-shineth. 

Watching silently. 



6 Fear not then to enter, 

Though we cannot bring 
Gold, or myrrh, or incense 
Fitting for a King. 

7 Gifts He asketh richer, 

Offering costlier still ; 
Yet may Christian children 
Bring them if they will. 

8 Brighter than all jewels 

Shines the modest eye ; 
Best of gifts He loveth 
Infant purity. 

9 Haste we then to welcome 

With a joyous lay 
Cheist the King of Glory, 
Born for us to-day.

2 They tore them form the cradle bed. 

They tore them from their mother's 
breast ; 
But since they died for Jesu's sake, 
We call those babies blest. 

3 They might have grown up wicked men, 

That heeded not God's holy word ; 
They might have ioined their cruel cry 
Wlio crucified the Lokd. 



4 But early called they gave their lives 

For Him, who fleeing through the 
wild. 
Yet had a part in all their pangs. 
And loved each martyr child. 

5 Safe from beneath the murderer's knife 

They passed to His eternal rest : 
And since they died for Jestj's sake, 
We call those babies blest.

Hymn 224. 



2 Looking for the promised King, 

Who, in Eastern quarters. 
Soon should spring to life, to rule 

O'er earth's sons and daughters. 
Them this eve, while rapt in sleep, 
One had roused in accents deep, 
"Haste ye ; watch ye ; vigil keep 

By Euphrates' waters !" 

3 Up they spring, and quickly hie. 

Each his pathway ben diner, 
Through the chilly mist and gloom. 

O'er the earth depending. 
How the world in darkness lav. 
Till the Day-Star shed Its ray, 
Nature thus would fain display ; — 

Mystic emblems lending, 

4 Then the kings with solemn gaze 

Looked on high beholding ; 
For the marvel yet to come, 

Heav'n then- spirits moulding, 
When behold, with silent awe, 
Suddenly the clouds they saw 
Like a darkened veil withdraw, 

Wonders more unfolding. 



5 In a trice a star shone forfb, 

O ! so brightly shining ! — 
Nearer, nearer yet it came, 

Still towards earth inclining ! 
And 'twas shaped — ! wondrous sight .' 
Like a child enthroned in light, 
Crown'd, though yet, with sceptre blight, 

Victor — cross combining ! * 

6 Then again the moon her rays 

O'er the earth v>'as streaming ; 
Cold and darkness fled apace. 

Stars with light were beaming. 
But yet kneeling 'neath the sky, 
Still the Magi Razed on high. 
As though rapt in ecstacy, 

Or entranced dreaming ! 

7 Then one cried, ' ' Behold the strr 

Of which seei-s have spoken. 
Beaming on the land pfar. 

And of life Ihe token ! 
Haste we, brothers ! let us spend ; 
See, it moves ! It comes to lead 
To the Chbist. of Judah's seed 

Bom of line unbroken !" 



8 Up they rise, and bend their way. 
Toil nor labour sparing. 
Over mountain, hill, and plain, 

Costly treasures bearing. — 

So do ye your oflfiings make, 

Fear no pain for Jesu's sake. 

Ever strive heaven's road to take, 

For your Loed preparing ! 



* An allusion to a legrend, preaervprl In an ancient Commentarj- on S. Mat<he\v, thnt the star, 
first appearance to the Magi, had the form of a radiant child, bearing a sceptre or cross.

2 Heard you never of the story, 

How they cross'd the desert -wild, 
Journey'd on by plain and mountain, 

TiU they found the Holy Child? 
How they open'd all their treasure, 

Kneeling to that Infant King, 
Gave the gold and fragrant incense. 

Gave the myrrh in offering ? 

3 Know ye not that lowly Baby 

Was the bright and morning Star, 
He who come to light the Gentiles 

And the darkened isle afar ? 
And we too may seek His cradle, 

There our hearts' best treasures bring, 
Love, and Faith, and true devotion. 

For our Saviour, God, and King.

Scattered are the clouds of error, 

Sin and hell are captive led.

Soon shall hear the gladsome sound. 
Joyous tidings of salvation 

Borne to Earth's remotest bound.

B. — And the day is far spent. 

I BELIEVE in God the Father Almighty, ^laker of heaven and earth : And ua 
Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord ; Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, 
Born of the Virgin Mary ; Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and 
buried; He descended into hell, The third day he rose from the dead: He ascended 
into heaven. And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty ; From 
thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. 

I believe in the Holy Ghost; The holy Catholic Church, The Communion of 
Saints ; The Forgiveness of sins ; The Resurrection of the body ; And the Life ever- 
lasting. Amen. 

V. — Let our prayer be set forth in Thy sight as the incense. 
J?. — And let the lifting up of our hands be an evening sacnfvce. 
V. — The Lord be with you. 
a. — And with thy spint. 

Let us pray. [All kneeling.] 

A GODof Abraham, God of Isaac, God of Jacob; bless these Thy children, and sow 
^ the seed of eternal life in their hearts ; that whatsoever in Thy holv Word they 
shall profitably learn, they may in deed fulfil the same. Look, O Lord, mercifully 
upon them from heaven, and bless them, that they, observing Thy will, and alway 
being in safety under Thy protection, may abide in Thy love'^unto their lives' end -^ 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

r\ LORD Jesus Christ, Who didst sit lowly in the midst of the doctors, both hearing 
^ them and asking them questions; grant unto us. Thy servants, both aptness to 
teach, and willingness to learn Thv blessed will, Who livest and reignest with the 
Father and the Holy Ghost, One God, world without end. Amen. 

T'HE grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of 
-■- the Holy Ghost be with us all evermore. Amen.

8 The statutes of the Lord are right, and re- | joice • the | heart : || the commandment of

Psalm 51. Miserere mei, Deus. 

HAVE mercy tipon me, O God, after | thy • great j goodness : jj according to the mul- 
titude of thy mercies do a- | way — j mine - of- | fences. 
Wash me throughly from my | wick-ed- | ness : || and | cleanse • me | from • my j sin. 
For I ac- | knowledge • my j faults : || and my sin is | ever • be- | fore — j me. 
Against thee only have I sinned, and done this evil | in • thy | sight : || that thou might- 

est be justified in thy saying, and | clear • when | thou • art i judged. 
Behold, I was shapenin | wick-ed- | ness: || and in sin hath my j mother con- | ceiv-ed | 

me. 
But lo, thou requirest truth in the | in- ward | parts ; 1| andshalt make me to understand | 

wis-dom I se-cret- | ly. 
Thou shalt purge me with hyssop, and I | shall • be | clean : [| thou shalt wash me, and I 

shall be | whit-er | than — | snow. 
Thou shalt make me hear of | joy • and | gladness : |I that the bones which thou hast | 

bro-ken | may • re- | joice. 
Turn thy face | from • my | sins : |j and put out | all — | my • mis- | deeds. 
Make me a clean heart, | O — | God : || and renew a | right — | Spirit • with- | in me. 
Cast me not away j from • thy | presence : |1 and take not thy j Ho-ly | Spir-it ] from me. 
O give me the comfort of thy | help • a- | gain : j] and stablish me | with • thy | free — | 

Spirit. 
Then shall I teach thy ways un- | to -the | wicked : || and sinners shall be con- | vert-ed | 

un-to I thee. 
Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God, thou that art the God | of • my | heaLh : Ij and 

my tongue shall sing | of • thy | right-eous- | ness. 
Thou shalt open my lips, | O — | Lord : j| and my | mouth • shall | show • thy ] praise. 
For thou desirest no sacrifice, else would I ] give • it | thee ; j| but thou delightest ] not • 

in I burnt — | offerings. 
The sacrifice of God is a | trou-bled | spiiit: \\ a broken and contrite heart, O God, | shalt • 

thou I not • de- | spise. 
GiiOKY be to the Fathee, | and • to the | Son : [[ and | to • the | Ho-lt | Ghost ;

Mingled gall and vinegar ;

6 By Thy nailing to the Tree, 
By the title over Thee, 

On the hill of Cilvary ;

7 By the parting of Thy clothes. 
By the mocking of Thy foes. 

As they watched Thy dying woes ; 
Hear us, Holy Jesu. 

8 By Thy Seven Words then said. 
By the bowing of Thy Head, 

By Thy numbering with the dead ; 
Hear us, Holy Jesu. 

9 By the piercing of Thy Side. 
By the stream of double tide, 
Blood and Water, thence supplied ;

A}id from evil thoughts within. 
That we may true pureness win ;

When death's bitterness is past. 
We may see Thy Face at last ;

1 A GEEAT and mighty wonder ! 
-^ A fuU and holy cure ! 

The Virgin bears the Infant, 
With Virgin honour pure. 

2 The "Word is made incarnate, 

And yet remains on high ; 
And cherubim to shepherds 
Sing anthems from the sky. 

3 And Tve with them triumphant 

Eepeat the hvmn a^ain : 
"To God on high be glory, 

And peace on earth to men ! "' 



4 While thus they sing your Monarch, 

Those bright angelic bands, 

Ee.ioice, ye vales and moimtains ! 

Ye oceans, clap your hands ! 

5 Since all He comes to ransom. 

By all be He adored. 
The Infant bom in Bethlehem, 
The Saviouk and the Lord. 

6 And idol forms shall perish, 

And error shall decay, 
And Chkist shall wield His sceptre, 
Our LoKD and God for aye. Amen.
